The video of Ambassador Stevens “evacuation” will make you sick. I can’t confirm the man in the video is Ambassdor Stevens but it is a man with his physique and it appears to be his clothing. One of the men who is involved in the video is the man in the photo above with a cell phone in his mouth. In the second video I have linked to, he can be seen more clearly.
In the videos, they yell, “Allah Akhbar.” Is it a celebration of his death or that he is alive or that they have rescued his body?
Were these the terrorists who just bombed the shelter? Were they the locals who tried to save him? Why was his body missing for 5-8 hours? There are horrific stories coming out of Lebanon which detail abuse and then murder. The White House said they are not true and that he died of smoke inhalation. I do not believe the Ambassador was alive if he was abused.
One man posting on the video claims the following as the translation of some of their comments:
“I swear, he’s dead,” one Libyan says, peering in.
“Bring him out, man! Bring him out,” another says.
“The man is alive. Move out of the way,” others shout. “Just bring him out, man.”
“Move, move, he is still alive!”
“Alive, Alive! God is great,” the crowd erupts
Another poster said this:
They are cheering “God is Great” as they drag his body out, which is an exhalation of essentially a good deed, and approval.
Benghazi, you’ll remember, is the place that Gaddafi threatened to destroy with all its 800+ inhabitants. We saved them.
In this somewhat clearer video, the Ambassador could be alive and it can be found here. There was a worse video which has been removed from YouTube.
Pictures and video can be deceiving, it is hard to know what exactly was going on with these men who evacuated the Ambassador. What happened to the other men is still a mystery. One report from the White House claims that Sean Smith died early on while in the consulate.
God rest the soul of Ambassador Stevens. I pray he is in a better place with Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty.
Warning the video is upsetting:
